I've never been able to unlock/lock a door by setting the memory cell 0 to different values either. But you can also unlock doors by setting the door's flag (memory cells 2 and 3, assign them in the editor.) to 1.

Right, right. The "mega-hard combat part." Well, I'm actually going for (mega-)hard combat against monsters that are impossible to hit.

quote:
So is that Wall Ogre idea up for grabs then?
Sure. I made my Wall Ogres like this:
begindefinecreature xxx;
import = 32;
cr_name = "Wall Ogre";
cr_level = 75;
cr_hp_bonus = 500;
cr_sp_bonus = 0;
cr_ap_bonus = 1;
cr_icon_adjust = 64;
They could stand to have more hit points, though and I'm not sure what that sp_bonus is for.

So yeah, Mr T (first post) has come and stated the obvious like some of you already did but hey, he's a celebrity!

There is actually some truth in here. But here are the lies:
VahnataiWall Ogres (or monster plague of any kind.)The outrageous statement that I've made any kind of progress.That I'm excited. My heart is full of blood, not emotion.Screenshots 1-3 are actually genuine except for the fact that I placed blood everywhere and damaged the walls. Oh, and the wall ogres. No wall ogres. Screenshot 4, of course, will not be seen if I ever finish the thing. I was originally planning on having the text area visible. It would have said: "Ssslimey hits Rentar-Ihrno for 225", or something. So yeah, go back to sleep.

(Scroll down for more details.)

I've made huge amounts of progress with my new scenario lately. If I continue to design at this rate it should be done sometime this summer. I've added some basic information and screen shots to my site. I'll probably write some more about the basic plot premise later but I have to be somewhere soon so stay tuned.

I'll also create a topic about this in the Hype Central soon. The only reason I didn't do it to begin with is that I figured the scenario would get more exposure this way and I'm pretty excited about it.

Rats Aplenty: passing the gates ... how? in Blades of Avernum

There is also an eternal rat that appears in the middle of the floor - when I kill it, immediately another rat appears (... a bug?)
Also disappeared the bridge to the portcullises when I came close to that place for the first time - I had to re-enter the cave.
*Blink. Blink* So someone prevented you from proceeding by removing a bridge and you thought they'd put it back if you went away for a while? Silly me for not thinking about that. Re-entering the Lost City will no longer make the bridge reappear. (At least it won't in the version I have on my site.)

New Scenario: Frostbite in Blades of Avernum
Shock Trooper
Member # 5459
Profile Homepage #11
I'm playing Frostbite right now, though I think I have the wrong kind of singleton. He's mainly a spell caster. Still I'm looking forward to how Lazarus will kill each and everyone of the members of the expedition. Although, if it turns out that most of them survive then that's just sad.

As for Amnesia: If the story goes somewhere from the premise then it might be Slack's best work, which isn't saying much. Of course there's always the problem with Slack's dialog. Ugh!

Edit: Disregard. Everything runs smoothly with compatibility mode.

Provincial Avernum? in Blades of Avernum
Shock Trooper
Member # 5459
Profile Homepage #0
I'm talking about the land that was given to the Avernites after the events of Avernum (Exile) 3. I have some questions about it:

1) Does the name Provincial Avernum appear anywhere in the works by Herr Vogel? I got the name from Encyclopedia Ermariana.

2) Is it mentioned anywhere in Avernum 4? I haven't registered it, okay?

3) Just how independent are the people living there? I mainly want to know what Prazac says at the end of A/E 3.

The less Vogel has said about it the better for me, though. :)

Edit: Oh right! This is in the Blades of Avernum boards. So, uh... Is the any mention of it in the pre-packed scenarios. Phew! Now this belongs here. Smooth.

Survey this way! in General

I have a limited taste of the kind of music I listen to, but here goes:

This song will be playing when I meet the love of my life:
Tearjerker - Korn (Actually, I don't even remember hearing this song. That can't be good.)

Right now, I feel:
Against the Grain - Bad Religion (*shrugs*)

What makes me happy is:
Moskau - Rammstein (Well, the song actually does. The city not so much.)

My love of life was inspired by the song:
Saasta - Apulanta (Yeah... It means "filth.")

My message to the world has always been:
Ohne Dich - Rammstein (Hey! I can do without you, you rotten world! *goes cry*)

Next time I'm in front of a crowd, I'll say:
Stealing Society - System of a Down (Huh. Better make sure I never get in front of a crowd.)

My friends see me as:
Tier - Rammstein (Aww. :( )

When I'm drunk I say:
Rammstein - Rammstein (Actually, very true.)

My alter-ego is:
Dalai Lama - Rammstein (Really? I wish someone would tell me.)

My deepest secret is:
Bring the Noise - Anthrax & Public Enemy (Phew. At least Gay Muppet Bar didn't find its way here.)

My day will be like:
Becoming - Pantera (Uh, I'm becoming god-sized? Man, I'm an idiot.)

When I'm in the shower, I sing:
Until You Crack - Union Underground (I do not.)

My favorite thing to do is:
An Education in Rebellion (Am not a rebel!)

My parents are like the song:
Dittohead - Slayer (Uh, ditto?)

My ultimate song for dancing is:
Das Modell - Rammstein (Ugh. Terrible.)

At my wedding they'll play:
Hyvää tulevaisuutta - Kotiteollisuus (Means basically "Have a good future." The song is really not very positive or optimistic, though. So nice.)

The story of my life is:
jumala - Apulanta (So now I'm the Dalai Lama and a god?)

My innermost desire is:
Dead Skin Mask - Slayer (Hmm... Maybe I would want a mask made out of dead skin.)

To cheer myself up I sing:
5 Minutes Alone - Pantera (Don't remember this song.)

At my funeral they'll play:
Hippo - Apulanta (Oh jeez. Did I die of overeating?
quote:
EWWWW, Ash. God, that's not even funny.
That's why it's funny.

Rats Aplenty (or how do I set a flag ingame?) in Blades of Avernum

If you have the character editor, why not just give yourself the ancient items using the Advanced Features. The numbers for the ancient items are 456-459. For the record I didn't thought about the items disappearing from the shops if the player would sell them. Guess I ought to change their value to zero.

Edit: Curse you Imban! Well at least I knew the item numbers.

It might have been in January when Linda (or someone. I've lost the email) mailed me and asked me if I had the Rats Aplenty graphics file for Mac. So I have sent RA to Spiderweb and will continue to send any future scenarios there but I won't bother bugging them about it.

I'm feeling sadistic in Blades of Avernum
Shock Trooper
Member # 5459

But Lazzie, what you're doing isn't exactly a save point now is it? Since you can't stop people from saving but rather check if their save is in a legitimate spot when they load their game it's really a load point.

May I suggest that you just kill the party whose save isn't in a right spot. If you only give them stat penalties or something then here' what I see would happen: 1) The stat penalties are too low so they don't bother the player. 2) They're too severe so the player must restart anyway.

You know that Empire emblem? The one with the crown that can be placed on the north wall or west wall? Well it's kinda hard to make buildings that really stress the fact that they are pro-Empire when that's all you got to work with.

So what I want is more decorative things with the crown in it, or any other symbol of the Empire that I'm unaware of. Mainly what I want is a rug/carpet with the crown in it but any wall hangings and such would also be much appreciated.

Exodus update in Blades of Avernum
Shock Trooper
Member # 5459
Profile Homepage #16
I may be completely wrong in this but maybe it's Phaedra's creature number that's making her a shade (179). Maybe Summon Shade works weirdly so that the better version of divine shade (creature number 178) is the next creature number. Also god parties summon high priests.

This is a little more than a wild guess. When I made a whole number of custom floors, the floors 194 and 195 were automatically signs. Notice that terrains 194 and 195 are in fact signs. I know this isn't the same thing as the mess with Phaedra but it got me thinking.

quote:
I believe Smoo has mentioned that he first attempts every scenario with a non-spellcasting singleton.
Not anymore. I thought it was pointless to use a level 78 character to battle through a beginner scenario. Nowadays I'm all about four non-spellcasters which I've played to level 45 and have saved their progress after each five levels they gain.

I am making yet another one. This one should keep me busy for a year or two or if I continue to invest as much time into making it as I am now, for all eternity.

It's set in (mostly) one huge city with no outdoors and I hope it to have a better plot than my previous works (as in there's more of it) but like in my previous works I will bury the main plot under a hundred side quests.

Oh well. I guess I'll just settle for being the guy who makes scenarios for the sake of diversity in scenarios in stead of praise from others. *Runs to a dark corner and sobs uncontrollably for several hours while listening to emo music.*

On an unrelated note it seems that Spiderweb has already put Embers of Rebellion on their tables and WtRM but not Rats Aplenty. After I checked that I did actually send RA to Spidweb I noticed that I, for some reason, sent it to spidweb@yadayada in stead of blades@yadayada. I suppose my email got lost in the passage of time. I'll just have to resend it.
